• Celebrating Cookie Friday with a New Friend

    October 2, 2009

    This afternoon, I got to celebrate Cookie Friday with a new friend: Jenny! :mrgreen: Jenny is a student at Harvard and she’s been reading Carrots ‘N’ Cake from almost the very beginning. We met near the John Harvard statue before heading to Hi-Rise Bakery to enjoy a couple of cookies.

    Hi-Rise was pretty busy today, but we managed to score a table outside, where we chatted for almost an hour! Jenny and I had a lot in common.

    As usual, selecting a cookie at Hi-Rise was tough work! I ended up picking an Oatmeal Coconut Pecan cookie, while Jenny chose a Chocolate Chunk cookie. Delish! :-D

    After work today, I’m headed to Newport for the weekend with my hubby. Unfortunately, Murphy isn’t allowed at my in-law’s timeshare, so Auntie Sister is on pug duty for the weekend. She is SO EXCITED for Murphy to come stay with her! I’m going to miss M.P. (Murphy Pug/Piranha) sooooo much, but I know he’ll be in good hands.

    Murphy actually has a busy weekend ahead of him– including two family parties and a long walk around the lake. I wonder if he’ll even miss Mom and Dad?

    A BIG Thank You

    With all of the craziness surrounding my recent West coast trip to BlogHer Food 09, I failed to thank my wonderful sponsor for their support. So, here’s a BIG thank you to NASOYA for sponsoring me! I truly appreciate Nasoya’s support of my foodie/blogger endeavors! The trip couldn’t have been possible without it! :mrgreen:

    oh, Murphy is going to have a blast! Every time we go out of town I feel bad leaving my dog but she doesn’t miss us one bit, haha. She is always happy to see us when we get back though :) Have a great weekend!

    I always think that we miss our animals more than they miss us when the Husband and I are on vacation – but then we pick them up from whoever is babysitting and they are so excited to see us! It’s great. I’m sure Murphy will miss both of you – though it sounds like his first night back home will be a tired one!

    I’m so jealous that you get to go to Newport! I went to school in Providence and we would ride our bikes down to Newport all the time!
